Description

MODULAR SYSTEM FOR ARRANGING PLANT COMPOSITIONS

The utility model relates to gardening in general and to modular systems for arranging plant compositions in particular, and can be used for growing plants, particularly flowers, berries, seedlings and decorative plants in greenhouses, indoors and outdoors.

Today many problems concerning arranging “ever-blooming” beds, borders, rock gardens etc. (hereafter referred to as composition) occur in cultivated plant growing. The same is for the problem of proper plant positioning within a composition and combining plants in one composition, which plants require various types of feed and top-dressing and have different root system depth. The problems also concern different blooming periods, different plant heights and different types of soil giving the plants the improved growth.

There are known modular systems for arranging plant compositions comprising external modules and internal modules for plant cultivation disposed in corresponding external modules (e.g., ref. the invention description of WO2009116228, IPC A01G 9/00, A01G 1/00, published 24/09/2009; CH 102124916 A IPC A01G 9/02, published 20/07/2011;US2012036773 (A1), IPC A01G 9/02, published 16/02/2012).

The main disadvantage of similar devices is that the external module is unable to receive the internal different height modules for plant cultivating with various root systems with the upper edges of different height internal modules being on the same level.

The prototype of the technical solution as claimed is a modular system for arranging plant compositions containing external modules and internal modules for plant disposed in corresponding external modules (e.g., ref. an invention description of WO2009116228, IPC A01G 9/00, A01G 1/00, published 24/09/2009).

A drawback of the prototype is that each of the external modules is unable to receive the different height internal modules for cultivating of plants with various root systems, wherein the upper edges of different height internal modules being on the same level. Said drawback is caused by the prototype being intended for cultivation of the same (or very similar) plants in identical internal containers.

The technical result is to provide arranging plant compositions by disposing one internal module in each of the external modules, wherein the internal module is selected from a plurality of different height internal modules for plants having different root systems, and wherein the upper edges of different height internal modules are on the same level.

The subject matter of the technical solution as claimed is characterized in that it comprises external modules and internal modules, each disposed in the corresponding external module; wherein as opposed to the prototype each external module is provided of a shape, the cross-section of which is of any geometrical configuration, preferably the same for each external module; wherein the position of each internal module for plants being fixed in the corresponding external module by means of contact with an external module side wall or by means of contact with the bottom of the external module either directly or via intermediate elements; wherein each internal and/or external module is provided with openings in the side walls and/or bottom for water surplus drainage and soil aeration inside the internal module.

The subject matter of the technical solution is disclosed by means of the drawings specifying possible embodiments.

Fig. 1 is an axonometric view of an external module according to the first embodiment;

Fig. 2 is a top view of the first embodiment;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view along the line A-A according to the first embodiment;

Fig. 4 is an axonometric view of an external module according to the second embodiment;

Fig. 5 is a top view of the second embodiment;

Fig. 6 is a sectional view along the line A-A according to the second embodiment.

The modular system for arranging plant compositions comprises external modules 1 and internal modules 2 for plants, each disposed in the corresponding external module 1 (Fig. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). The external module 1 may be provided of a shape, the cross-section of which is of any geometrical configuration, preferably the same for each external module 1 (Fig. 1, 2, 3, 5). For example, it may be of square, rectangular (Fig. 4,5), hexagon (Fig. 1, 2), round or irregular cross-section shape. The position of each internal module 2 for plants is fixed in the corresponding external module 1 by means of contact with an external module 1 sidewall or by means of contact with the external module 1 bottom either directly or via intermediate elements. For instance, this can be provided by means of contact between the upper edge of each upper module 1 and the internal module 2 upper edge flanges, or by means of contact between the bosses on the outer side of the internal module 2 upper part and/or the bosses on the inner side of the external module 1 upper part, or by means of contact between the bosses on the internal module 2 bottom and/or the bosses on the external module 1 bottom.

Said fixing of the internal modules 2 in the external modules 1 provides the upper edges of the internal modules 2 being disposed on the same common level.

The shape of the internal modules 2 in their upper parts is identical to the inner side of the external modules 1.

The bottom and/or the side walls of each internal and/or external module 1, 2 are provided with openings for water surplus drainage either into the soil or onto the surfaces of the area where these modules are placed onto, as well as for soil aeration inside the internal module 2. The openings in the external module 1 and the internal module 2 may be arranged in a mesh-like structure.

One or more external modules 1 are embedded at a place where a composition is to be arranged if the claimed module system for arranging plant compositions is used outdoors, or they are placed onto a plane surface, for example, when the beds are arranged on a building roof. The external modules 1 may be attached to each other by fixing elements in order to provide a reliable thee-dimensional structure. The external modules 1 are assembled into a thee-dimensional structure of the modular system for arranging plant compositions according to the shape of a composition to be arranged.

The external module 1 may be provided with detachable internal partitions, upon which the internal modules 2 rest with their flanges. The pattern of the composition to be arranged is formed by means of the internal partitions. Using of the later allows for the internal modules 2 of different size to be applied. Moreover, in such a way it is possible to prepare for further growth of the composition central plant.

When the internal modules 2 are used for separate plant cultivation, it will be easy to arrange “ever-blooming” compositions by inserting the claimed internal modules 2 arrangement for separate plant cultivation where plants are blooming into the external modules 1.

Mistakes occurring while planting in the conventional composition when the taller plants appear to be positioned in the front and this may be corrected only by means of replanting in the case of the claimed module system for arranging plant compositions are easily corrected through changing positions of the front and back internal modules 2.

The problem of combining plants into a whole composition, wherein the plants requiring different types of soil and top-dressing to be used, is solved by means of separate cultivation of plants in different internal modules 2.

The problem of combining plants into a whole composition, wherein the plants having different root-system depth is solved due to the different height internal modules 2 being used.

Upon placing onto some of the external modules 1 decorative lids it is possible to form the passages for providing access to the plants or for walking.

The advantages of the modular system for arranging plant compositions as claimed are as follows.

1. Arranging compositions does not require replanting.

2. Plants are always available to be changed as required.

3. The plants requiring different soils and having different root system types may be combined.

4. Since the external and internal modules 1, 2 are unified and the necessity of replanting is avoided it is allowed for rapid arrangement of a plant composition required.
